Nihar Janga has Dez Bryant’s stamp of approval.

Janga crushed it at this year’s Scripps National Spelling Bee, earning co-champion honors alongside Jairam Hathwar. His word-spelling prowess wasn’t the only highlight of his tournament, though. Janga stole everyone’s heart, including Bryant’s, with a charismatic performance that he capped by tossing up the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver’s trademark “X” touchdown celebration.

Bryant loved it.

Let’s hope Bryant and the Cowboys really do get Janga out to a game at AT&T Stadium. The 11-year-old native of Austin, Texas, who’s a huge fan of Bryant, certainly deserves it.
